Treating customers fairly

Responsible lending

Close Brothers Motor Finance is a trading style of Close Brothers Limited (‘CBL’). CBL is authorised by The Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority. As a responsible lender we are committed to applying the FCA’s principle of Treating Customers Fairly in all areas of our business activities to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Our customers can be confident that they are dealing with a company where the treatment of customers is central to our corporate culture;
  • Our products and services are designed to meet the needs of identified consumer groups and are targeted accordingly;
  • Our customers are provided with clear information and are kept appropriately informed before, during and after the point of sale;
  • Where our customers receive advice, the advice is suitable and takes account of their circumstances;
  • Our customers are provided with products that perform as we have led them to expect, and the associated service is of an acceptable standard;
  • Our customers do not face unreasonable post-sale barriers imposed by us to change a product, switch provider, submit a claim or make a complaint.

We are also a member of the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) and follow the FLA Lending Code. This code sets out standards of good practice for the finance industry and provides our customers with reassurance that they are dealing with a reputable organisation.
